Behind the Lens

Kerage Kamuli comes from a strong background of film and cinematography. Born to one of the first female Tanzanian producer/director KK went on to graduate from the South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance (AFDA), with a Bachelor of Arts in Motion Picture Medium in Cinematography. 

It is in her ability to see a narrative form a unique perspective that led her to a career behind the lens. Her strong beliefs in how film can impact and stimulate change in society is what drives her passion. In her own words, she is interested in using film as a vehicle to deconstruct society by creating content that rewrites cultural scripts and alters perception to stimulate a real change in society.
